High Spec Computer but loads EXTREMELY SLOW...

I built a custom computer and bought new parts off of Newegg in December of 2011. The computer boot time is absolutely horrendous. I'm the only person that uses this computer and whenever I enter my password and press enter, the loading time to actually get onto my desktop is really horrible. It takes nearly 4 freakin' minutes just to get everything loaded up and I get so pissed. All I do now is just put my computer to sleep since it's instantaneous when I wake it. But whenever I have to restart my computer after an update or just a plain old regular reboot to clear the computer's cache files, IT LOADS SO SLOW. All I see is a black screen after I log-in, and then after about 4 minutes my desktop and shortcut icon appears and everything loads. After everything loads, it's all smooth. Gaming is not a problem, it's just, why are my boot times so slow? I have AVG and Malwarebytes. I use Advanced System Care weekly and I defrag and optimize my computer and its registry every week with Auslogic. I even went to startup to limit the things that start when Windows starts so that it might speed it up, but it doesn't help.


My computer specs are:
1) Windows 7 64-bit
2)Motherboard: GIGABYTE GA-78LMT-S2P(rev 5.0) AM3+ AMD 760G + SB710 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
3) CPU: AMD FX-6100 Zambezi 3.3GHz Socket AM3+ 95W
4) Graphic Card: AMD Radeon 6850
5) RAM: Crucial 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10600) CT2KIT51264BA1339
6) Hard Drive: Western Digital WD Blue WD3200AAJS 320GB 7200 RPM 8MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive
7) Power Supply: RAIDMAX HYBRID 2 RX-530SS 530W Modular Power Supply

More about high spec computer loads extremely slow
  1. Mine takes 2 minutes to load just wait Mr.speedy lol but go into the BIOS and turn on quick boot it should help
  2. uninstall the software you don't use & reinstall windows(backup ur files)
    trust me, it will be much speedy after u reinstall windows.
  3. Definitely reinstall windows and enable quick boot in bios.
  4. It's probably a single device that's bad. It reminds me of when my network drive went down and it would sit on the black screen, exactly the way you describe, but forever(until I reset the drive).

    One thing you might try is to create another user account on your machine and see if you can't log in as that user much faster.
